Forum: etree Subject: Re: How long do Grateful Dead shows stay posted up on the site?

But curious if shows stay up or if it is a very fluid site in terms of what is posted.

Once a show is up on the archive's public servers, it will be downloadable by the public, for free, for decades and hopefully centuries. The archive project is helping share live music in our today-sense of music trading and enjoyment, but it's larger-scale goal is to have something as a historical document of an event so that a listener 40 / 50 / 100 years from now can for free browse sounds from this time period and hear different specific shows ...

In other words, should I constantly check back to see if there are versions of the shows that I like (auds)

once a show is posted, it will be here forever, so don't fret if you don't look back at the archive for a few days at a time. Stuff is always being added, check back from time to time and tell a friend!

If a "better" show is uploaded, does an earlier copy get removed either voluntarily or by the administrators?

the archive currently takes as many sources are available for particular shows ... so for one show you can have a SBD, at831, mk4's, and AKG's ... all will be equalilly allowed on the archive and one won't be taken down because it is 'better or worse' then the others. files space isn't an issue for us now. the above is answered also in this FAQ entry:
